Hewlett-Packard Australia Photosmart D7360
  • Expert Rating

    3.50 / 5

Pros

  • Easy to use touch-screen, Intuitive photo printing

Cons

  • Plain paper printing is not its strong point, Photo prints lacked some detail and had problematic colours

Bottom Line

Priced at $299, the D7360 is exceptionally easy to use and has the best software bundle in the business. But, its image quality is merely good, and plain-paper printing is clearly not its strong point.

Would you buy this?

With a simple tap of the touch-screen on HP's Photosmart D7360, you can print colour photos in a snap. Insert your camera's media card in one of its reader's four slots, and the on-screen wizard will walk you through the printing steps.

The wizard lets you browse your images on the 3.4in colour screen, perform simple editing operations, select which pictures to print, and choose the paper size. It also helps you print images stored on a USB device connected to the direct-print port.

The D7360's handy touch-screen menus also make setting up and maintaining the printer easy. You can even view animated demos of maintenance tasks, such as loading paper and cartridges, and clearing paper jams. The main paper tray holds up to 100 sheets of A4-size paper, and a second tray holds 4x6in snapshot paper. Options include a duplexer, for double-sided printing, as well as a Bluetooth adapter for printing from camera phones and PDAs.

When you connect the D7360 to your PC and touch 'Save' on the screen, the bundled software launches and helps transfer your images to the computer. The printer comes with the full version of HP's Photosmart Premier, a convenient package that lets you organise photos into albums, edit them, print them, and share them through HP's Snapfish Web site.

In our tests, a shipping D7360 printed 5x7in photos at a moderately brisk 1.1 pages per minute (ppm). Most users will like its photo quality, but we've seen better. On photo paper, the darkest areas lacked some detail and exhibited a bluish tint, while skin tones looked too bronzed. Black-and-white prints had very smooth tonal gradations, though. On plain paper, text and line art were slate grey instead of black, and colour photos lacked brightness and shadow detail.

The printer comes with six individually replaceable ink cartridges that are separate from the printhead.

Priced at $299, the D7360 is exceptionally easy to use and has the best software bundle in the business. But, its image quality is merely good, and plain-paper printing is clearly not its strong point.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
